Years of squinting, concentrating, frowning and smiling can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, and the crow's feet near your eyes remain..even when your muscles aren't contracting.
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onatoulinumtoxin A) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, and crow's feet near the eyes of adults. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes those lines to form.
With a few tiny injections, BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the injected muscles, which reduces the muscle activity that causes those persistent 1's, 11's, or 111's to form. This reduced muscle activity helps reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your brows.
